50% off Farscape Complete $98.99 @ Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details

All post-production on the show was finished in analog PAL format at 576i resolution. Not true HD.

More info on this release from the Digital Bites.

This is not like the upcoming Star Trek Next Generation set where they are going back to the original 35 mm film and re editing the film and redoing the effects from the ground up.


Release date 11/15/11.

Thanks for the digitalbits link. Although the screencaps clearly show some improvement, it's not enough for me to shell out $100 to upgrade. I'm one of those suckers that bought the original seasons when they were $150 each MSRP, and then bought the Starburst sets later. I'm not spending any more money on Farscape, unless a ridiculous price is found (like maybe $40 or less). But I appreciate the info...

Ordered mine. I just had to. When it was $125 I passed. But I'm a big fan of the show - and at this price I went for it. I'm curious yellow to see this on Blu. I knew it was non-HD PAL. Probably a rip-off, but...
This is a triple dip for me: had the original ADV releases (long since sold off), and now have the 2009 A&E full series. Never got suckered into the Starburst Editions...but I suppose I'm getting suckered here.

I'd been trying to figure out how the frell to unload the DVD set...but I realized that I have the Best Buy exclusive box with "The Peacekeeper Wars", which I don't believe will be in this Blu set, so maybe I'll keep it. Anyone know if there is gonna be any Blu release of PK Wars? It wouldn't surprise me if BB did it as another exclusive...
